The Commonwealth Cup is on the line as the Virginia Tech Hokies face the Virginia Cavaliers in Charlottesville, VA on Saturday, November 27th at 3:45 p.m. ET. The game is scheduled to air on ACC Network.
VPI fired head coach Justin Fuente last week, but with jobs such as Florida, LSU, and several other top-tier openings available, it might be a bit before they make a hire. The Hokies will be playing for bowl eligibility in this one, as they sit at 5-6 after a 38-26 loss to the Miami Hurricanes on Saturday.
Virginia finally got starting quarterback Brennan Armstrong back yesterday against Pitt, but still lost 48-38 to end any chance at the ACC Championship Game. The Hoos are 6-5 and heading to postseason, and keeping their hated rival at home in December will be plenty of incentive in this one.
